All Official-like

on 28 June 2011

So it seems a little strange to mention something like this what with floods, wild fires, riots, wars and general chaos, but...


We're finally pregnant again.


It took more than a year and half and we're about 12 weeks along.  We found out we were pregnant on our anniversary and the baby is due the day before my next birthday...it's been the reason behind many of our smiles of late.  (And excess fatigue and more than a little bit of nausea.)  (Also, it maybe what's behind those rabid cravings for MEAT.)

I just got back from the doctor.  They did an ultrasound as part of the genetic testing, since I am...you know...of advanced maternal age now.  (So far this pregnancy has been great for my self-esteem.)  And the baby looks...just perfect.  Tiny and beautiful.  I'm looking forward to the next glimpse I get which should tell us if it's a baby brother or a baby sister.

So glad the cat is out of the bag!!! :) As I read your post about meat I was thinking "I know what THIS is all about!!!" Ditto the post about sitting around and reading. I can't wait to tell my mom and Kim!

I think that now is a perfect time for a little dose of joy. The world needs good news now more than ever. :) Thanks for brightening my day.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I totally suspected such when Chris posted on his facebook wall that you had actually eaten STEAK! I didn't want to be the nosy person that asks before the announcement though. I am beyond thrilled for you. So so happy!

I knew it! I got from your sporadic prior comments that you guys had been trying, so the last thing I wanted to do was ask and then be wrong, but on Sunday I thought I could see the slightest little person in there. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
